Summer construction around ETHS.

Throughout the summer before the 2023-2024 school year, ETHS underwent various construction projects to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of the building. With changes such as the roof renovation, ETHS has focused on maintaining and working to improve the building’s structure and safety. Superintendent Dr. Marcus Campbell provided a glimpse of the major changes to be seen as the school year begins.

“In the fall, we’ll be building a health science center. We received gifts from some very generous people to make that happen,” Campbell said.

Joanne Bertsche of the ETHS Educational Foundation thanked the Cless Family Foundation for their donation and laid out a plan for the new health science center to be a “transformative, life-changing space” in an interview with the Evanston Roundtable. This center is intended to give youth in the community an opportunity to explore their interests in healthcare careers. Over spring break, students will be able to collaborate with the NorthShore University HealthSystem and participate in a job shadow program, allowing them to enhance their knowledge and interests in various health career fields. NorthShore and ETHS hope for this center to generate passionate and skillful future healthcare employees.

Beyond creating innovative opportunities, ETHS is also turning its attention to enhancing its visual appeal. Plans for the building’s new design include the construction of an Alumni Hall, which is arranged to be just outside of the building’s South wing.

ETHS’s dynamic summer construction projects plan on bringing a new era of growth and innovation for the school. As summer transitions to fall, students and educators alike anticipate a revitalized environment that fosters learning, inspiration and new opportunities.
